Ashes.

 

Our world is in ashes

We've burnt up the past

We've ignited the future

It could never last.

 

The plans we had made

A lifetime to share

Are worth nothing to me

'Cause you just aren't there.

 

We talk to each other

But you never hear

No matter how often

I can't make myself clear.

 

All of the memories

The letters, the snaps

Incinerated tokens

Now we're off the map.

 

But you know I won't leave

I just have to stay

And dance through the ashes

We make of each day.
